I realize WotLK had VERY easy content aside from some heroic content, and that it allowed EVERYONE to get close to the best gear possible right when they hit 80. This sucked. A lot. Don't you wish it were more like BC? Or Vanilla? Where you almost HAD to max your professions and do some REGULAR dungeons before going into raids and heroic 5 mans?
Well that's what's in store with cataclysm so. Lemme know is this awesome? Bad?
Personally I think going back to a style of having to work a little more for gear will be AWESOME.
